Mini ELF Haul #3

It feels like all I'm blogging about now is my latest hauls but I promise that this is now going to change! As I'm now saving up for America - I need to save £250 to get $360 if the exchange rate was at $1.50 for every £1. When I think of it, I don't think $360 will be enough for my shopping list.. Eeeek!

Anyhow, I ordered from ELF on the 8th (which is on the same day of when I blogged about my previous ELF haul) as they had a promotion on - if you spent more than £10, you could either support Mineral or Studio and get a free mineral or studio eyeshadow in one of five different shades for both ranges as well as free shipping; which is pretty frigging generous! I decided to support Studio as I personally don't like getting powder everywhere. However, I didn't receive my order until today as they had a massive backlog of orders which is not surprising due to this rather generous promotion.


ELF Matte Lip Color in Nearly Nude
"This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates exact colour application. The pigment rich colour glides on effortlessly and provides long lasting matte colour. The enriched vitamin A, C & E formula moisturizes and hydrates lips for all day comfort."
This is lip colour #4 and I'm quite excited to start using this as I've been using Natural quite a lot recently so I'm wanting a change. I get on so well these as they're just like a lipstick except they're quite drying and are more like a crayon.
£3.50 (Will be changed to £3.75 I believe)

ELF Wet Gloss & Brow Clear Mascara
"Enriched protein conditioners combined with rapid-dry technology. Creates healthy looking lashes instantly. Glossy, wet look finish. Wear alone or over mascara."
I only bought this to use on my eyebrows primarily instead of for both my eyebrows and eyelashes. This is because I wear eyelash extensions and thus only wear mascara on my bottom lashes therefore I think it's a waste. However, on closer inspection - the brushes look the same as eachother so I'll use both for my eyebrows. I don't quite know what to expect of this as I think this was an impulse buy.


ELF All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade
"Naturally illuminates for a healthy glow. Instantly soothes & conditions skin. Multi purpose formula."
After reading Becky's comment on my last haul about how she uses Pink Lemonade as a blusher, I thought I would try it - even more so after ELF's Cream Blush in Flirt let me down. She also say's that it's really subtle so I'm hoping she means for every day use but I'm sure I'll find out later on. Despite now owning four in total of these - I haven't actually tried them out yet so I'm determined to use one very soon.

ELF Shimmering Facial Whip in Spotlight 
"Naturally illuminates for a dewy finish. Soothes and conditions skin. No sticky, greasy feel."
This was the one item that I've been waiting for ages to get into stock and they finally did get it in! This is apparently a really good highlighter and lasts quite a while so I'm looking forward to trying this out.

ELF All Over Color Stick in Golden Peach
"Naturally illuminates for a healthy glow. Instantly soothes & conditions skin. Multi purpose formula."
Once again, Becky had said that she uses this and I thought what the heck, I might as well. 

ELF Single Eyeshadow in Charcoal*
"Beautiful soft texture that melts into the skin for a vibrant color that lasts. Convenient and easy to apply, just layer the color to achieve the desired intensity. Apply wet or dry for a fabulous look that never creases or fades."
Despite this being a free gift, I'm a little disappointed to find that when I received it, the packaging was ripped. Perhaps all their single eyeshadows for both Studio & Mineral had rips in the packaging thus the reason why for the promotion to give it all away? I doubt I will use this as I don't wear eyeshadow often but I'll see what the colour is like swatched.
UPDATE. I've left out the nail varnish that I had ordered by accident - I'll do a NOTD/NOTW in the next few days with it on as it's such a nice colour. It's in the shade Passion Pink if you're wondering.

I think when I go over to America, I might buy some of their range which you can't get over here maybe. Until then, no more ELF orders or any kind of shopping for that matter :(

Have you tried any of the above?


  1. Wow you got some fab things there! Let me know how you find the Pink Lemonade as blusher :) Hope you like it as much as I do! Also, I would love to know what you think to the matte lip colour, I might get one in future!
